Happy New Year, everyone! After some much needed rest and relaxation at the end of an amazing holiday season I'm finally back to blogging and I've got so much to share with you.
I posted a little sneak peek of this darling baby girl and I'm so excited for you to see more. Jenny and Matthew welcomed me (and my two amazing assistants for the day) into their home to photograph their sweet Julianne who is just as beautiful and photogenic as her parents. See for yourself.
This girl is a spitting image of her daddy.
I'm a sucker for a yawning baby. Gets me every time.
So, I mentioned I had two assistants that day. This next shot is the reason why. So hard to pull off, but so worth the effort! Thanks to Genna and Kristi for all their help on this one. And to Jenny and Matthew for trusting me enough to hang your precious baby from a tree branch. No babies were harmed in the making of this photo, but if I remember right, at least a couple of us got peed on. Ha!
So sad but so sweet with that tiny little cry of hers.
I told Jenny when we shot her maternity session to be prepared to fall in love with Matthew all over again and on a whole new level once Julianne arrived. Those of you who are parents know what I mean, but until you see it for yourself, it's indescribable. One of my favorite things about becoming a mother was seeing my husband become a father, seeing the way he looked at our daughters, the way he held them so delicately and loved them so whole-heartedly…there's nothing like it. And after this session Jenny concurred. She totally got what I was saying. There's nothing like the love these two have for their baby girl. She's their long awaited miracle and she's one lucky girl.
She wasted no time wrapping him around her finger.
This was the shot I was most excited for Jenny to see. May she never outgrow the desire to snuggle with her daddy.
Or hold her mommy's hand.
Congratulations, Jenny and Matthew. I can't wait to watch her grow!
Until next time,
